Welcome to our historic home in this old Tobago neighbourhood. The property was recently renovated and all modern conveniences were installed but it maintains all the charm of its 150 year history. Fruit trees abound; there’s almost always something in season: mango, sapodilla, avocado and heavenly Tobago chennet. Guests are welcome to sample but are reminded that the chickens and iguanas are pets, not food. A short stroll away is the magnificent Fort King George built in the late 18th century.

The cottage is beautiful. Fully stocked kitchen, a rooster that wakes you up, hammocks for relaxing, a reading room, and beautiful touches of history throughout the place. Wi-Fi is great and the host is fairly quick to respond to any messages. A great place in Tobago!

The cottage is a wonderful place to stay. It has a nice view of Scarborough and the garden is lovely. It is secure and very close to the fort on the hill. There are chickens in the yard so you don't have to set an alarm clock. I would stay again and recommend it to others.

This rustic cottage on a budget is unique, but has everything you need (including WIFI, Netflix, roosters and hens). The view is great of the harbor. Store within walking distance. The only negative during our trip was the stove was not working. But there are restaurants downto…

Scarborough, Western Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago

Unsurprisingly, the neighborhood is known as The Fort. With its magnificent views, the nearby Fort King George is one of our favourite places in Tobago, especially in the early morning and at sunset b…

Getting around

Unless you are very fit or planning to get fit fast, we recommend a car. Route taxis don't come up the hill but you can of course hire a taxi to take you around. If you are going into Scarborough for …
